Do it in css

.node:hover {
  background: #FFFF00;

or you could do it on .content. 
I use this method on forms, it tells people when to click to get the cursor in 
and once its there I use :focus so they know where they are in the form. eg
.form-textarea {
  background-color: #EEE;
  border: 1px solid #888;
.form-textarea:focus {
  background-color: #FFC;
  border: 1px solid #F88;
.form-textarea:hover {
  background-color: #FFC;
